    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The film premiere of The Theory of Everything, about the life of Stephen Hawking, will raise funds to support two multiple sclerosis (MS) research organizations in Costa Rica.

    The president of the Association of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Jacqueline Centeno, said before the screening of the film, a neurologist physician assistant will be there to explain everything about the condition, and at the end of the premier,  a local speaker will relate his family’s personal experience with MS to the audience.

    The film will be released next Tuesday at the Cinepolis Terramall in Carthage, at 7:00 pm. All ticket sales will be donated to the ALS Association and the Costa Rican Association of Multiple Sclerosis.

    Hawking was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a degenerative disease without cure, with an average life expectancy of 2 years. However, Hawking defies the odds to become one of the most influential scientists of our time.

    The film is nominated for five Oscars, including best picture and best actor for Eddie Redmayne, who won a Golden Globe in the same category. (Amelia Rueda)
